The St. Patrick’s Day Parade hosted by the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Jeffersonville Fire Department last Saturday was a huge success! The day was sunny and a huge crowd of people of all ages filled Main Street Jeffersonville, enjoying the bagpipes of “McPadden Pipes & Drums”, marchers (including a large group from the Jeff Bank), floats, decorated trucks and firetrucks with marching firefighters from many of our local Fire Departments. The Grand Marshall was Jim Hughson riding on his green John Deere tractor, of course! Everyone including myself watched a “Leprechaun” hanging upside down from Dick’s Auto Sales wrecker, spinning around in circles (thank you to Martin C. for making all of us gasp)! A big “thank you” to JP Graham, the spunky and informative “Announcer of The Day” in the booth, The Ancient Order of Hibernians, and the Jeff Fire Department for all of their hard work!
Our local restaurants had delicious specials, and the green drinks at The Tavern were great!
Ted’s Restaurant did a “Meet and Greet” and had job applications available and Sullivan Sundries was on hand to meet everyone too! We can’t wait until both of these new and amazing businesses open in our beautiful town! Little birdies say both should be opening this Spring/Summer!
